Coming 2 America   Coming 2 America Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  3/4/2021 3:27 PM EDT
Let's get this out of the way right from the beginning; I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's fun, as only Eddie Murphy can deliver it, it's nostalgic, conjuring up the magic the first film brought to us back in the late '80s, and it sticks to its original themes of love, family, and tradition. It's still the acceptable Cinderella story for our mode... Read More

Horizon Line   Horizon Line Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/2/2021 9:41 PM EDT
Hypothetically, what if you found yourself on a small, twin-engine plane without a pilot.  Would you know what to do?  Would you be able to fly the plane?  What if you only had a few, informal lessons? Would it be enough?  That is exactly the dilemma Sara (Allison Williams; Get Out) is faced with in the Mikael Marcimain (Call G... Read More

Raya and the Last Dragon   Raya and the Last Dragon Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/1/2021 12:00 PM EDT
Diversity has become a common topic for discussion in the entertainment industry.  From "whitewashing" of award nominees and casting movie/television roles with actors of different ethnicities than the characters they are supposed to be portraying.  As such, the country is seeing a shift towards more conscious and varied charact...

Tom & Jerry   Tom & Jerry Theatrical Review

Cherry   Cherry Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/25/2021 12:11 PM EDT
As the saying goes, "War is hell".  While it may seem like a rather trite statement to make, those who have lived through it would probably say it is the truth.  Grim memories of watching friends get killed, with all the blood and guts that go along with it, or remembering shooting the enemy, haunt many a soldier.  Thought ...

Do The Right Thing   Do The Right Thing 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/22/2021 8:40 PM EDT
What if you watched a movie about poor African Americans living in New York?  What if that film depicted growing racial tensions between black people and Italian or Korean shop owners in the neighborhood?  What if, after a confrontation between the shop owners and the locals, a young black man was killed by the police which started a riot...

Flora & Ulysses   Flora & Ulysses Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/17/2021 12:06 PM EDT
There is a saying in Hollywood – "Never work with children or animals".  However, if you are cast in a Disney production, chances are you will probably work with one or the other or if you are really lucky, both.  For Alyson Hannigan (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Ben Schwartz (Sonic The Hedgehog), the latter version becam...
